' jim debrill was on the scene of the fire in queens. this is what he described. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11. the firefighters and cons during 9/11. this area was hit horribly tonight. many expected there would be flooding. and then, the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was right across from us. as this fire just spread, we waited our way to another home. and then, realized, a parking lot we were next to, the cars started to blow up. and the fire continued to spread. my understanding, it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point, an area they call the wedge. we thought we would come here and see people that didn't want to leave. now, they're being forced to leave. not by water. not by flood. not by sandy. but by fire. >> devastation in queens. you see the areas affected in greater new york. we want to go back to staten island. >> that's right. we have more dramatic scenes of devastation coming in right now. extraordinary pictures of a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island. this is a live look
of serious grid lock. jim axelrod is in lower manhattan. >> reporter: that's a crucial piece of news. 227,000 customers still without power in manhattan, although we are told now by saturday power should be restored fully in new york. now, as for the traffic that we're talking about, the massive traffic situation, city's bridges and tunnels absolutely choked with vehicles. traffic lines stretching for miles. through midnight tonight, police will refuse entry into new york for vehicles less than three passengers. public transportation is helping, although lines for shuttle buses reached three hours yesterday. getting rid of water is the top job here. a group of what's called unwatering experts from the army corps of engineers is here to help and they expect to suck out about 10 million gallons of water. from california, 70 power trucks are being air lifted here to help restore power. but the bottom line, charlie, is the more -- the quicker the power is restored, the sooner congestion will be reduced. charlie, norah? >> jim axle rodriguez, thank you. >>> the cia is fighting back against cha
that things are getting worse. >> so we took that particular question to meteorologist jim dickey of accuweather.com to see how unusual a weather pattern like this is. >> good morning, rob and paula. well sandy will likely go down as one of if not the worst storms to ever impact the new jersey beaches and new york city. the reason behind this unprecedented impact is the unusual path this storm took. sandy's path took it directly into southern new jersey. a worst case scenario for the region. now here, every line you see on this graphic is the track the tropical system took that impacted the new york city area. well, as you can see, a number of tropical systems did hit through the years. no storm took that path into southern new jersey like sandy did on monday. so, why this unusual path? why is it unseen until now? first off, important to note, tropical systems do spot in october. the atlantic hurricane season ends november 30th here, there is a secondary peak in october of tropical storm formation. in fact it is because the storm occurred so late in october, in my opinion, that it
events in order to monitor recovery efforts. in an e-mail to supporters, campaign manager jim messina asked for donations not for the campaign, but for the american red cross stating "soon enough we'll get back to work on the most campaign of our lifetime. but the most important thing at this moment is you and your loved ones are safe and the rest of us do what we can to speed the recovery." the romney campaign, on the other hand, found themselves struggling to find the right tone. in an effort to avoid seeming insensitive to the millions of americans affected by the storm, the romney camp canceled appearances on monday and tuesday but rebranded others as storm relief events. senator john mccain spoke on behalf of governor romney at an event in ohio today and apparently missed the memo about putting politics aside. mccain slammed the president's handling of the the attack on the american consulate in libya. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the american people, or he is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be commander in chief of our arm
the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic opponent jim graves. her district has an 8% republican registration edge but still she only leads graves by 6 points. florida congressman allen west, he's raised $17 million compared to the $3.5 million of his democratic opponent patrick murphy. but polls show murphy leading west 48% to 47%. and, of course, we just cannot forget illinois congressman joe walsh -- perhaps the craziest of them all. he's answering a question about women's reproductive rights. take a listen. >> if a woman's life is at issue, would you say she was allowed to have a abortion? >> let me say there's no sun exception. with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance. this is an issue that opponents of life throw out there to make us look unreasonable. >> jennifer: actually, congressman, i think you're doing a pretty good job of looking unreasonable on your own. fortunately, voters in walsh's district agree because the latest polls have him trailin
this morning while drivers could see another day of serious gridlock. jim axelrod is in lower manhatt manhattan. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this gives you a pretty god idea of what the commute is like on this friday morning. the traffic signals are out. because there's no power. that creates quite a bit of chaos at the intersections as these negotiations go on about who is going to get the right of way. all over the city, as we said, chaos. the bridges and tunnels choked with vehicles. traffic stretching for miles. through midnight tonight police will continue to turn away cars with less than three passengers. public transportation, lines for shuttle buses reached three hours yesterday. getting rid of water that's still flooding out tums and roads. tough job here. army corps of engineers is here to help, planning to suck out 10 million gallons. trucks being air lifted here to help restore power. pretty simple equation. the quicker they get power on, the quicker the congestion will be reduced around new york. con ed, the power company that takes care of new york city says by tomorr

driveway is currently closed. because of a tree and some wires that are down across the building. jim vance had to make the extra walk to the parking lot. sorry about that. >> that's all right. i made it. san >> i saw you running. >> we call it a superstorm because of so many facets. look how big this is. here's the hudson bay in northern canada and it is all the way down to jacksonville. tlir-mile-an-hour winds out to sea. very cold on the back side. very warm air on the east side of this storm. as a matter of fact, take a look at the numbers here as far as that's concerned. >> or the snow. >> there's the snow that fell in parts of the ohio valley back through portions of the mountains, through west virginia and western pennsylvania. also, the wind was almost as strong along lake michigan and lake erie as it was for us here. 50 and 60 mid to upper gusts. what was i talking about? the warm air flowing ahead of this. watch this. how about montreal, canada. what do you think? 70 degrees in montreal. we are at 46 degrees. that was our high temperature. a 30-degree temperature, almost 30 degree

to evacuate, there were some who chose to stick it out. from long beach island, new jersey, hey jim, good morning. >> good morning to you, soledad. an icy wind is cutting across this largely abandoned island. the only people who are here are construction workers, emergency crews, and the national guard, as well as police. residents have mostly abandoned the island. there are a few, a few holed up who refuse to leave, including a 93-year-old woman, we are told. but there's no gas on this island. there's no electricity on this island. we came here in the cold, darkness, and there wasn't a light to be seen almost anywhere except the emergency headquarters that's been set up for the people who are trying to put this island back together again. 18 miles long. some 18,000 homes. and all of them, all the owners, waiting to see how much damage they sustain. a lot of wind damage, some water damage, of course, but not the heavy kind of damage we've seen in some of the other areas here along the jersey shore. at the same time the residents who want to get out here have been told that it will be a ma
.7. >> they are both former governors. george allen was the senator until he was beaten by jim webb in 2006. this is a redemption effort by george allen. he has been through the ringer and got heat the last time for associating with the confederate flag. for making some purportedly racist comment on the campaign trail. he is a more subdued, cooler less fiery george allen. and i would say that if mitt romney runs strong, in virginia, he could tug george allen first over the finish line here. >> bret: tucker? >> in montana, the incumbent democratic senator john tester is challenged by the state's only congressman denny reburg. this should be an easy race for republican. chester barely beat conrad burns six years ago. the republican is being hurt by independent candidacy. a guy named dan cox, libertarian. interestingly, this week, we reported that the group called montana hunters and anglers come out with the spots attacking denny rieberg not being sufficiently conservative. but the surprise the group of hunters and angleers is power play ord and funded entirely by democratic operatives. guys
of ohio. 5:30 p.m. eastern. now to jim next in franklin, pennsylvania, republican. caller: i highly disagree with s estimatee -- his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the electric knew all -- if the electorate knew all the facts, how could a president, the secretary of state, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust su
